Chelsea fans have a reason to celebrate as the club has officially announced the signing of Brazilian midfielder Moreira from Flamengo. The 22-year-old has been one of the most sought-after talents in South America, having scored 15 goals and provided 12 assists in 38 appearances for the Brazilian champions last season.
Moreira, who can play as a central or attacking midfielder, has signed a five-year contract with Chelsea and will wear the number 10 shirt. He is expected to join his new teammates in London after the Copa America, where he is representing Brazil.
Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel expressed his delight at securing the services of Moreira, who he described as “a creative, dynamic and versatile player who can improve our team in many aspects”. He added: “We have been following him for a long time and we are very impressed by his performances and his potential. He is a young player with a lot of talent and ambition, and we are confident that he will adapt well to our style of play and our philosophy.”
Moreira also shared his excitement at joining Chelsea, saying: “I am very happy and proud to join Chelsea, one of the biggest clubs in the world. I have always dreamed of playing in the Premier League and I am looking forward to working with Tuchel and my new teammates. I hope to contribute to the success of the club and to make the fans happy.”
Moreira is Chelsea’s first signing of the summer transfer window, as they look to strengthen their squad after winning the Champions League and finishing fourth in the Premier League last season. The club is also reportedly interested in signing a striker, a defender and a goalkeeper, with names such as Erling Haaland, Raphael Varane and Gianluigi Donnarumma being linked with a move to Stamford Bridge.
